My name is Steve, from Vancouver, Canada. In the summer of 2011, I decided to quit the army in favour of travelling Europe, North Africa, and more than likely Asia. After selling most of my larger “things,” getting my British passport, and collecting various supplies, I am now on the road.
There are various reasons for this trip. School and/or a 9-5 job really doesn’t appeal to me, at least not at this point in my life. The military showed me a world outside the sheltered Western lifestyle so many of us live, and helped me defeat my anxiety issues (for the most part). I now feel most at peace on the road, sleeping in bushes on the sides of highways, and enjoying the random adventures I get myself into.
This blog will cover my travels, including volunteering (WWOOF’ing, workaway, and monetary work when I can find it), my observations of the areas I pass through, and generally any excuse to write. I write this mainly for my family and friends, but also for those looking at a less than conventional lifestyle themselves.
Without trying to sound pretentious, society and all its stigma’s rot your brain. Get out into the world while you can, LIVE life, and experience all the good this world has to offer… Contrary to what we see on TV, the world isn’t evil.
